Adamstown travel guide

1 tripwolf member likes Adamstown


Scattered along a plateau 120 meters above the landing at Bounty Bay is Adamstown, the only settlement. There is now a concrete road from the harbor at Bounty Bay up the "Hill of Difficulty" to the village. At the top of the hill over the bay is The Edge, a restful spot with benches, shady trees, an old anchor, and a great view of everything.

Pitcairn postage stamps may be purchased at the post office between the courthouse and church. The library and dispensary are adjacent. A bell on the square is used to announce church services and the arrival of ships. The graves of John Adams, his wife Teio, and daughter Hannah are a short walk inland.
